unimessinaOur researcher Jaume Albertí attended the first edition on Sustainability and Life Cycle Thinking Program at the Messina University Summer School, which took place on July 3-7.

The Seminar, titled "The integration of economic, environmental and social issues for the design of sustainable urban systems", introduced a new paradigm in urban development scenarios oriented to combine resources, inputs, processes or policies in order to generate improvements in the lives of individuals or for society as a whole through studying life cycle thinking and a sustainability approach.

The main goal of this Summer School is to define the current state of the art of life cycle based sustainability applications, methodologies and tools as well as their implementation in an urban context as decision support for policy makers, companies and other stakeholders. Moving from theory and tools to policy measures, attendants to the Sustainability and Life Cycle Thinking Program were actively involved in lectures and case studies including Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Risk Assessment (RA), Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA), Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA), LCA-SEA (LCA- Strategic Environmental and how to outline a route for sustainable and shared urban planning development (in a triple bottom line sustainability perspective). The Summer School lectures presented a study of the urban development with an interdisciplinary and integrated approach, carrying out a new perspective, based on an approach to urban metabolism concept specially oriented to Sustainability. The ultimate goal: taking informed decisions
